    Then perhaps you should read post 6 again, then take out a razor that has been set with one layer of tape, shave it, strop it and repeat until it just starts to go south, then put it on a BH without tape and do the testing.. I bet what you find is exactly whet I found, it is a moot point... Let me know how that goes in a year or so because once you prove it to yourself you should probably repeat it a few time to make sure of the findings...

    I am NOT being mean or picking on you, what I am saying is do the tests and learn, rather then the parroting of the same old un-proved info..

    For a new bevel doing the test you are talking about, set the bevel with one layer of tape, then remove the tape and re-set that same bevel, I found that in less then 20 light laps on a 4k hone that taped bevel is gone, that is just how small it really is... You should try that too

    As for the change of the bevel angle you mentioned in another thread,

    Tape the Straight Razor Spine to Hone It?

    stating the same thing that many have, you might try a long run experiment rather then repeating the same stuff..

    Using a taped spine WILL change the bevel angle but again in real life it is a moot point,

    Honing with/without tape... Testing the theories


    Now please do NOT just take my word, for it, like you have somebody else's, take the next few years doing the tests and prove it to yourself ...

    Actually when I stop and think about it, that is reasonable advice. Thanks.
